- — Organic, Non-GMO, Raw, Vegan
Organic Arrowroot Powder aka Organic Arrowroot Flour or Starch is a pretty new product on the market that we are happy to introduce you to. This powder is made by drying the substance found in the roots of a tropical plant called Maranta arundinacea. Our Arrowroot Powder is not treated with high temperatures but is minimally processed and remains Raw. Food to Live’s Arrowroot Grain-Free Starch is USDA Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan and doesn’t contain any additives or fillers.
What does Arrowroot Powder do and how to use it?
Arrowroot Powder Organic has a texture of fine starch and is tasteless which makes it extremely versatile. One of the main uses of this Non-GMO Starch Powder is as a natural food thickener. It works wonderful for thickening soups, dips, gravies, fruit jams, jellies, homemade ice cream, mousses, and cream fillings. The most common Arrowroot Powder substitute is cornstarch. Talking about the differences between Arrowroot Powder vs Cornstarch, the latter may add a distinct grainy flavor to your dishes, and they may become cloudy when frozen, whereas Arrowroot doesn’t have any odor or taste and remains clear after freezing.
Nevertheless, you shouldn’t treat foods that contain Arrowroot Powder with high temperatures since it can become thin again. Apart from Cornstarch, Arrowroot successfully replaces Tapioca Powder, Xanthan Gum, Potato Starch, and even various flours. For example, you can use this Organic Fine Starch when baking pies, cookies, cakes, breads, muffins, or making desserts and sweets. It adds crispiness and fluffiness to your goodies and works especially well in combination with lower-carbohydrate flours like Blanched Almond Flour or Coconut Flour. Finally, try using Arrowroot Powder for skin: as a natural compact powder or an eyeshadow (when mixed with cacao or beetroot powder). Moreover, you can use Arrowroot powder in place of chemically infused dry shampoos; for dark hair, mix it with cacao powder and apply on area near roots with a large fluffy powder brush.
